Public Modest


27th September 2015

Barely a year has passed since Russia annexed Crimea. The Russo-Ukrainian War has grown in intensity and breadth as more forces have widened the frontline. Intent on liberating seperatist regions in the east of Ukraine, Russia began to mass its troops in sympathetic Belarus along Ukraines northern border.

In August Russian and Belarussian troops attacked from the north intent on seizing Kyiv. Over the following month this attack faltered and the spearhead that was driven towards the capital became another front line. 

Nine days ago, on the 18th of September, a Belarussian armoured column situated in the west pushed across the Polish border before moving to occupied territory in Ukraine. Polish forces quickly began to deploy to their eastern border where more Belarussian incursions occurred. A NATO ultimatum to halt all further action against Poland was issued and expired last night with no definitive reply.

Charlie Company of 40 Commando were already present in Ukraine training Ukrainian forces when this occurred. By the expiration of the deadline last night three troops of the company had deployed into Belarus.

Behind the frontline, 2 Troop are observing a supply route used by the Russian forces. Intelligence indicates that a flight of Ka-52 attack helicopters is to conduct an attack on a key part of the front line and has revealed where they are currently located. Close to where 2 Troop have set up their patrol harbour, the opportunity cannot be wasted.

The flight is expected to take off in 130 minutes at 08:10. Destroying the aircraft will prevent the attack and cripple the enemy in the local region.


2 Troop is to locate and destroy enemy attack helicopters.
